Laura's quilt: Monkey Pants

This past winter, Karen, a friend of mine asked if I would teach her daughter Laura how to quilt.  Laura wanted to make a quilt for her cousin Lorenzo.  Laura is homeschooled, so this was a bit of Home Economics.

Laura and I got together once a week and I taught her the basics.

She learned how to use a rotary cutter and measure with the mat and ruler...measure twice, cut once...

We used the Yellow Brick Road pattern, with a few changes.  It is a really great pattern to use for a beginner!

Laura learned how to use a sewing machine.

The completed top and batting.

The backing ready to be tied.

All done!!

Great job Laura!!!

I love passing on a love for sewing and quilting.
Have a great day
